Examples of how gullible I am

Something Crissy said on her bloggie blog today reminded me of a story I just HAD to share despite the fact that ultimately is in an accurate representation of what a ditz I can be. Chuckles and I have spent a couple weekends over the past couple summers lounging around at Lake Chelan and while we generally just lay around and wait for the skin cancer to get us every once in a while we get off our bums and go look through the little touristy shops that permeate the place.

One day we were wandering around an art gallery and I offhandedly mentioned that I liked a painting, which happened to be by one Ed Hunt. Chuckles responded by saying, “Huh. I know his brother Mike.” I replied by loudly saying, “You’ve never mentioned Mike Hunt to me. I have never met Mike Hunt.” Chuckles told me to use my inside voice or I should say attempted to but he was having difficulty because he was laughing too hard.

Then there was the time we were driving up to the tulip fields and as we were passing a Hertz rental car place Chuckles ever so sweetly asked me if I would like a “Hertz donut”. My reply? “Hertz has donuts? Well, yeah I want one. You know how much I love do – OW! What the?!” Yep, he punched me in the arm and then said, “Hurts, don’t it?” HAHAHA. He’s a riot and I’m a dum dum.

Ahh too funny! When I was waaaay younger, my brother and I would call Wal-Mart and say we needed our dad immediately for some emergency or other, and could they please page him. His name? Hugh Janus.

Pathetic, I know...

I remember hearing the Hertz Donut one on Doug when I was little! Remember how...... man. What was the bully's name? The one with the green skin? Well, remember how he had an even meaner alter-ego? I think his alter-ego said that one.

And, once when my uncle Al was ordering food and the girl asked for his name, he gave the name "Stu Pedaso." That one was clever.

Thespottedottoman - Hilarious! In now way is that pathetic in my book.

Angela - More proof of just how awesome that show was.

Heather - I need to start using in on other people, I'm tired of being the embarrassed one.

Heather - I know! Especially the part where he got my hopes of for a donut.

Maxie - You're going to trick all your friends now right?

Mizfit - I haven't seen it, but I really want to! I definitely will now based on your recommendation!

That's weird. I had never heard of Ed Hunt before. I knew that Mike Hunt had a brother named Yorick, though.

Would you page Mr. Jass for me, please? That's J-A-S-S, Jass, first name Hugh. If he's not available, Mr. Shun, first name Eric will do.

I've fallen for both of those. And I'll probably keep falling for them. All the cool kids do it.

Matt said...

HAHA...everyone has fallen for the hurts don it.

The Hertz Donut is new to me. I'm going to have to try it out all my friends now. I am familiar with Dick Hertz though. Yep, just ask the receptionist to see if Dick Hertz is in the waiting room, there's an important call for him. Kills me every time! I mean, it used to. You know, when I was young and immature.
